Alice Rosenthal, beekeeper and rescuer, likes to think of honey as in Forest Gump's famous line, "Local honey is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you might get". The beauty and surprise behind local wildflower honey is - you just don't know what you're gonna get. But one thing for sure - they are all going to taste great and different from each other. Alice of Golden Gate Neighborhood Honey maintains slightly over 100 hives in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. The majority of hives are from West Richmond, Upper Fruitvale, and North Oakland/South Berkeley areas. Most varieties are wild honey that was harvested while rescuing and relocating honey bees from naturally constructed hives. The honey is processed differently when it is harvested from a wild environment. Because there are no frames to support the comb it must be crushed (with hands) to liberate the honey. While harvesting the honey in this manner, small amounts of pollen and wax are blended into the honey. We will rotate the varieties each week. In our returnable 1/2 pint Jars!
